About

There is no secret to achieving higher performance in your EMS service. It requires a combination of dedicated people with exceptional skills, effective and knowledgeable leadership, appropriate tools for accomplishing your mission, and the support of a community of peers willing to help you succeed in both defining as well as accomplishing your vision. Development in each one of these areas will advance your mission and is that the reason this blog was created and is dedicated.

Through the support of BCS, this site and other “High Performance EMS” social media outlets, have been made possible in order to share information and build a community of expertise surrounding the improvement of effective and efficient care outside of the hospital setting.

You are invited to be a part of this effort and encouraged to participate with your experience and ideas. We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours.” - John of Salisbury (1159)

    Greetings! I am helping develop content for an EMS Management course and am looking for resources to share with students about maximizing EMS efficiency, SSM, and UHU. Where can I find case studies and other tools to use in class?

      We certainly hope that you find case studies and resources regarding EMS Management in many of the posts on this site. We started hp-ems.com with that exact mission in mind and if we fail that in your opinion please let us know so we can do better.

      Jodi, it took a while, but we have begun putting this sort of information together in book form. Our first attempt is “Dynamic Deployment: A Primer for EMS” (http://www.amazon.com/Dynamic-Deployment-A-Primer-EMS/dp/1500428574/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1407501551&sr=8-1&keywords=dynamic+deployment). We are already in the process of building its sequel that we hope to be a broader compendium of cases, authors, and opinions regarding the measurement and improvement of performance. We will share more as it comes closer to being finished. In the meantime, we hope this blog and the other “High Performance EMS” social outlets will provide more daily inspiration and information as we build this community of support together.

Static v. Dynamic: A Continuum of Cost
Totally agree. I would add that response and transport need to be understood. Within busy urban areas an ambulance can be both the response and transport vehicle. In rural areas response can be achieved efficiently by a Community Paramedic in a car within 8 minutes supported by an ambulance within 20 to 30 minutes i.e.…

Since medical calls are now the focus of fire service. Maybe it's time for a rebranding if you will to new terms like "EMS Based Fire Service". Paramedics are constantly upgrading thier knowledge and skills and get thier butts kicked daily but don't enjoy the same pay or benifits that firefighters do. Something is wrong…

This article is more about understanding evidence based research then applying it rather then replying on personal experience and tradition. Even if you don't like what research says.

High quality comes from seeing multiples of truley sick patients with strong training and support from an experienced partner, not just from being a busy transport vehicle.
